Supporting young talent is an important objective of the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung. It funds, for instance, sculpture courses with emphasis on glass at art academies and glass schools. The support gives students the chance to realize special projects and to produce costly artworks.
Thus Henriette Olbertz-Weinfurter was able to make her installation for the Akademie der Bildenden Künste München with the financial support of the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung. The foundation subsequently purchased her work entitled Gelbes Rauschen (Bienenaltar) for its collection. The artist is studying visual art with emphasis on glass at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich. Her piece consists of three screen-printed float-glass panels framed in wood. Hidden inside is a sound system. When we close the altar we hear bees humming.
The foundation is lending Pasinger Fabrik the work for its upcoming exhibition Denn die Kunst ist eine Tochter der Freiheit! (24 May – 25 June 2017) and so is happy to introduce Henriette Olbertz-Weinfurter and her work to the general public.
You will find more information about the exhibition at the Pasinger Fabrik here.
